Finally at anchor, or not?

Yesterday after 72 hours fishing we finally got a sea animal attached to the hook, but in a brisk move, S made a unique manouevre allowing to be disconnected and break free with a full set of lure, lead and tackle, resulting in a uniquely pimped fish with lots of bling. Indeed, S is a vegetarian :)
So much so that after repeatingly chasing out a lovely poor tired and indeed possible wounded mother bird with lots of mini birds, courageously collectong food for her nest, S was able to corner Calimero, squeeze it, and then dodge ball her towards the Moroccan coast. She now lives happily in Agadir.
Then, as S suffers adhd, he pumped up the tender, single handedly mounted the outboard, and then left at full speed, without his phone, the marifoon/vhf, peddles, a plan and without enough fuel.
About one hour later A, from H&A, spotted a dinghy without a occupant. Stronger, our dinghy without an occupant. Yes, it was S in the water, about one mile away. Apparently he thought he could swim with one hand against the current while pulling the boat. We decided to quickly raise the anchor and race towards our pour Man Over Board...
We just finished anchoring yet again, in a bit deeper water, as we luckily spotted a tidal difference of 2 meters, as we previously anchored at High Water... Tonight we"ll get Bf 5 predicted, so likely 6 or 7, so we let out ample chain.
